ACMI visit

I had a great time running around Melbourne with a coupla visitors earlier this month. Vegan pies in Preston, discovering fish leaves (they smell like fish), zaatar pizzas and dubstep in the morning and all that.

One of the places we went to was the Australian Center for Moving Image (ACMI) in Federation Square. Most parts of the center was free. The current exhibition was about Hollywood Costumes and we weren’t dying to go to that anyway.

The center has lots of stuff to keep us busy, such as the media library and the video games -from the vintage to the sophos.

A few highlights of my visits are this thing that rotates and turns into an amazing animation-like spectacle:

and this brilliant steam punk-ish creation by Anthony Lucas

As well as this sign acknowledging wayang as one of the first forms of animation.

I am not much of a dancer. I take wrong steps every now and then, but the mistakes can lead to laughter or lessons.
